The participation of perhaps the two greatest cricketers of this generation, Sachin Tendulkar & Lasith Malinga, would suggest that the World Cup final will be the biggest cricket turnover match of all time. India are the 8/13 favourites and Hills have already pushed out the price about Sri Lanka winning from 5/4 to 11/8 to attract support. Tendulkar is 5/1 to get his 100th Hundred, 5/1 to be named man of the match and Hills offer 8/1 that Tendulkar has a decision overturned on review. Sri Lankan talisman Muralitharan is 14/1 to take five wickets in the final and also 14/1 to take a wicket with his final ball of one day cricket.

"Punters are all over India to win the final and are backing Tendulkar to once again come good for his country on the big occasion!" said Hill's spokesman and cricket betting expert Rupert Adams.
